Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

HP a6412p added 2nd hard drive but wont work get blue screen

\015 HI. I have a HP a6412p computer (desktop), with windows vista. I just installed a 1tb wd hard drive as a second hard drive, didnt touch the first at all. It was a working hard drive. It was a wd my book hard drive but the usb part broke off so I took it apart, bought the 2 cables needed to install it IN my computer, and did. I know it was installed right, I followed a tutorial step by step. problem is, when I put it all back together and turned on the computer, I get a blue hp screen. I pressed f1 f2 f11 esc all the buttons it said on the bottom and it does not get past that blue screen. I opened it up and unplugged the wires from the new hard drive and now it works again. (without new second hard drive). Did I not install the wires right? The red wire, I put to an empty sata plug, there were red blue etc all sata 1 sata 2 sata 3 etc. the other one is poewer. Does anyone know what I did wrong? I didnt get an installation disc since it was an external drive. I just didnt want to have to pay $30 for a new box to put it in so bought the wires instead (doesnt matter to me if its inside or outside really). I have googles it and no where does it say what to do. thank you!!!!\015
